Chilima says demos must go on: ‘Don’t muzzle unequivocal call of the people of Malawi‘

UTM Party president Saulos Chilima has again endorsed the cause of civil society organisations (CSOs) under the banner of Human Rights Defenders Coalition (HRDC) in holding  nationwide mass protests to force Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC) chairperson Jane Ansah and other commissioners to resign.

Chilima: Free from fear, let’s people protest peacefully

The country’s immediate past Vice-President who is seeking nullification of the May 21 presidential election results, said this following an order by Inspector General of Police Rodney Jose for the HRDC to stop organising the nationwide protests.

In a statement released on Tuesday evening, Chilima said while he condemns acts of violence and looting registered during some of the demonstrations, “no State institution should be used to muzzle a very clear and unequivocal call of the people of Malawi”.

The coalition has organised mass protests on August 6 as they argue that  the current MEC led by Ansah has failed Malawians; hence, the need for the commissioners to resign.

Chilima is backing the calls for the immediate resignation of Ansah for allegedly failing the nation.

He is fit to be a boxer or resler and not a leader for a Nation .Ubwenzi opanga chifukwa chofuna kuthana ndi munthu.Moti zoona inu amungelo wodziwa zonse mungaphatikane ndi MCP mwachilungamo,komanso abusa ngati Pali munthu wabvulaza chipani chanu amuneu.Chakanika bakha Malizani nokha.Kodi mulibe alangizi?Mwavulazitsana kale.Muyamba kakanirana posachedwa ndipo muyamba kuthawana posachedwa .Mwadziika pamtunda.

His ego has completely obscured the power of reason. Very sad. The character has disheartened most would-be voters in 2024

Ayamike ndani? No one owns this country. This political worshipping thing is what has made Malawi the 4th poorest in the world. So Malawians of goodwill are pushing hard to go into a new way of political thinking that can propel Malawi forward. Its a kind of change that will not be stopped. We have retrogressed too much.

@Kuthundira: Good and pertinent questions apa.
But one more question: Does this kid Chilima not feel guilty for destroying the futures of the likes of Akweni, who followed him like bees to pollen flowers, based only on his pumped up ego, exuberance and exaggerated political acumen?
So, Chilima owes people answers; he can start by answering your questions above.
And, while he’s at it, he may as well answer mine.
